To keep things fair. Almost every club uses a particular tire for all the competitors. We call
this a (spec.) tire.
The tire we use is made by Vega and refered to as Vega Blues. The sizes are as follows.
Front 4.50 / 10-5
Rear 6.00 / 11-5
Note:Rookie drivers with their karts marked with an 'X' may use any brand of used tire.
Once in a while it rains but we race anyway. For these occasions we have rain tires. This is our spec. tire for rain.
Vega or MG tires type with size.
Front 4.20 / 10-5
Rear 6.00 / 11-5
From time to time we do make some exceptions for rain tires, contact us regarding specific details.
We require our competitors to purchase their racing gas from a designated gas station. Your fuel may be tested during the day
and compared to a sample from the designated gas station. This is to prevent people from using unauthorized additives in the fuel.
The gas station for each race can be found on our home page listed next to the current event.
